No 10 Things this week. I was hoping to have something up, but we're in the process of moving, I'm coming back to Michigan this weekend for a wedding, and I had a death in the family so the trip is going to be longer than I anticipated.
Any coverage will completely depend on family stuff. MGoBlue will be archiving Friday night's game and I have the DVR set for Saturday's game, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to watch them or if I'll have time to write about them.
Omaha is 4 points back of us in sixth place in the CCHA, but they have just four games remaining in CCHA play (against us and Notre Dame). Anything short of a sweep for them probably means they can't catch us. They've won just one game since the first of the year and have gone 1-7-4 since throttling Yale. They're winless in regulation in their last nine games and have gotten outscored 28-9 in that span.
Despite the recent slide, their goalies both put up pretty darn good numbers. This is a team we need to sweep, though.
Michigan needs a single point to clinch home ice in the first round of the CCHA Playoffs. Our magic number is six to clinch a first-round bye and home ice in the second round. That could happen with a Michigan sweep and an Alaska regulation loss (or two shootout losses) at Western Michigan.
